City of London School for Girls Bursary Trust Fund
Making a Difference
City of London School for Girls is unique in offering students an outstanding education with cultural, religious, geographic and socio-economic diversity. This distinction broadens all our students’ horizons and reflects the cosmopolitan profile of London and the world.
Established in 2004, our Annual Fund aims to support the generous funding we receive from the Livery Companies and the City of London Corporation. We are proud to be one of a number of schools in London that can offer a significant number of subsidised places and over 20% of our students receive financial support of some kind. However, today we depend on your generosity to maintain this proud tradition.
Making a donation to the school’s Bursary Fund is simple and you can choose to donate in a number of ways.
You can now donate online via the charity’s Just Giving page, click on the button to be redirected to the website. Both one-off gifts and regular donations can be made via this route and Gift Aid can also be reclaimed on any donations made online by UK tax payers.
Send us your gift in the post:
Simply send your address to the Development Office by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you the Annual Fund Booklet and Donation Form, along with a Freepost envelope to you. Please make sure that you have completed all the relevant sections of the form and that cheques are made payable to ‘CLSG Bursary Fund’. You can then use the enclosed Freepost envelope and return your gift to:
The Development Office,
City of London School for Girls, Freepost NAT 13392, London EC2B 2BR
Gift Aid and Match Funding:
As the City of London School for Girls Bursary Fund is a charity (number 276251) we can reclaim tax on any gift donated by a taxpayer and your gift will be increased by 25%. Remember to complete the Gift Aid Declaration on the donation form (there is no additional cost to you making a Gift Aid declaration). In addition, the City of London Corporation has agreed to match your gift.
We hope that this will provide greater incentive to make a donation today.
Other Types of Gift
You may feel that the kind of gift you want to make is not suited to the Annual Fund. Perhaps it is a substantial donation for a specific purpose, a bequest in a will or a gift in memoriam. If you wish to discuss options other than those offered through the Annual Fund, or would like further information, please contact:

As a result of our fundraising efforts, of which the Annual Fund Appeal is a major part, we are proud to say that we currently have many girls receiving bursary support. We hope to maintain and extend this number, with your help. We know that there are many calls on your generosity, but we know that we offer something special: a chance to realise a talented girl’s abilities and aspirations.
“I am most grateful to my benefactors who have enabled me to come to City, as I would not have been able to attend otherwise. I really love City as it is not just a centre of academic excellence but I have also discovered new interests and broadened my horizons through taking part in a variety of the clubs and societies on offer. City stretches me in every area and though I sometimes find the work challenging, I am up for the challenge! I hope to go to university, possibly to read medicine, as I want to do something that makes a difference.”
“It is impossible to do justice to the difference City has made to my life, especially as I would not have been able to attend CLSG without the financial support available to girls like me; I hope in time to repay the great debt I owe to the Corporation and the School.”
"The Pewterers’ Company has for many years provided both practical and financial support for education. It was one of the original founders of the City and Guilds organisation and continues provide a member of Council as well as a Court member for City University. We also sponsor a work experience fellowship for A level science students at the Institute of Neurology. On the financial front, we provide bursaries at a number of schools, including the City of London School for Girls. In this respect, it is a real privilege to be able to provide assistance to some particularly talented students and to help them continue to benefit from all that the school has to offer."
